How then shall we prove our good and faithful service? For whatsoever you desire,
even that will we strive to do; proving through a good and timely service, our deep
devotion and sweet affection to the Supreme Father of All.”
Summary: The masculine aspect of First God, referred to as The One, is recognized
as the “Supreme Father of All” (5:3:41). He is the Father Creator, “Supreme and Holy
Sovereign above all the Gods of Heaven” (6:1:1). The feminine aspect of First God
and Mother Creator is recognized as Areta, the Supreme Mother of Heaven.
These are the words which The One spoke, and Areta replied, saying: “Yes, my Love,
let us plan together well; and all our counsel keep in silence hid. For we alone,
being both Supreme Father and Supreme Mother of all these Heavens, must bear in ourselves
the outcome of all we do.
5th Endowment 4:4
I am The One, First God and Father Creator, Supreme and Holy Sovereign above all
the Gods of Heaven; being myself timeless and immutable, eternal mind most ever constant,
holding in my hand the streams of endless time, containing within my mystery the
seeds of glory and exaltation forever, worlds without end.
For I am the Mystery deeply hidden, revealing always the songs of the ineffable;
proving myself through kind devotion a good and holy consort; embracing to my soul
the hopes and dreams of my Beloved, to be for her the fulfillment and the joy; for
the Areta have I set as a crown upon my head, and a light within my heart.
